Allen, Texas – The Allen Americans, ECHL affiliate of the Seattle Kraken (NHL), defeated the Iowa Heartlanders on Saturday night by a score of 6-3 at CUTX Event Center.

Allen added three more goals to the lead in the 2nd period, with contributions from Ben Carroll and Jared Bethune, as well as Spencer Asuchak scoring his second of the night.
The Americans conceded two more goals in the 3rd period, but a four-assist game from Chad Costello in a very impressive offensive performance sealed the deal in the must-win game.
